learned. >> dance tweeted people can't drink until they're 21. what made the teacher think teaching kids to make beer is a good idea? >> thank you for your responses. i hope everybody has a great day. "fox & friends" starts now. good morning. it is wednesday, october 30. i'm elisabeth hasselbeck. all eyes on washington today as lawmakers prepare to grill kathleen sebelius on the disastrous obamacare rollout. will she take the fault or keep pointing that finger. >> i think there are going to be a lot of fingers. no wonder these two didn't look very friendly. russians handing out goody bags that spy on people. clever. >> plus before you pay seven bucks for a latte, listen up because we've gotted best cup of coffee that will not break the bank. "fox & friends" starts next. >> hello everybody.
3:01am
this is tim conway, and i'm here doing -- doesn't tell me. don't tell me. friends with the fox. >> after tim did that one yesterday, then brian blum, our audio guy, said can you lit. tim conway on the show yesterday. >> he was on. he had a brand-new book out. i believe it is still out. >> people are loving it. it is funny stuff. problems with obamacare, another outage plaguing the website. we are live in washington. good morning, elizabeth. >> reporter: folks in connecticut looking to make accounts ran into trouble. the federal data service experienced a widespread outage with the health care exchange. couples were blocked from accessing remote identity proofing, the social security administration
3:02am
section and tax credit page, basically necessary to complete the sign up process. there was a release issued encouraging people to browse. she writes connecticut consumers can continue to create accounts as well as shopl anonomously for price comparisons. access health e.t. will provide a follow-up notification. verizon said they were doing maintenance on the system. lawmakers said it was days ago the same provider suffered a network failure. >> the website again was down for the day, as it was yesterday, as it was over the weekend. they say it's going to be fixed by the end of november. this is not ready for prime time. >> the state will notify customers when it's up and running. elisabeth, brian, steve, back to you guys. >> kathleen sebelius, who heads up the health and human services department is going to be on capitol hill today 9:00 in the morning. the website rollout was
3:03am
terrible, and now hundreds of thousands and even millions of people are having their insurance policies canceled. what's she going to do? she's going to start pointing fingers at the people the government hired. the contractors. >> she's going to be evidently reportedly in the pregame report, and the prognosticators will say that is where she's going to point fingers. she is going to say she's not an expert on software but we did spend a lot of money to get this up and run. we want to know are we going to hear speeches from the legislators or are we going to hear quick, direct questions? for example, did you know in the middle of september? did you have an inkling in the middle of august? there is nine republican senators that would like to delay obamacare. do you think he could have wished he could whisper in the president's ear?
3:04am
>> quote, not enough time to conduct adequate performance testing given the highest priority. >> that is a direct statement. it is not ready to go. panic time. not golfing time. >> why was that ignored? >> maybe she'll answer. they'll have four minutes each i believe to ask a question. >> and get an answer. if there is going to be speechifying it is going to be short. she is going to start blaming the people they hired, vendors, contractors. her prepared statement, we got a snippet of it. c.m.s. used private-sector contractors just as it does to administer aspects of medicare. c.m.s. has a track record of successfully overseeing the many contractors our programs depend on to function. unfortunately a subset of those contracts for healthcare.gov have not met expectations. here's the problem. with the affordable care act, there are 55 different
3:05am
contractors. usually what you do with something this complicated is you bring in a professional manager, somebody from the industry to honcho everything. instead the federal government said we want to run this. and we saw how they ran it right in the ground so far. >> there's a couple of aspects to this too. we could get all hung up on the website. as bad as that story is -- and it doesn't end because it went down again -- the other story is what the policy looks like. what is in store for us. yesterday was kind of interesting. we had marilyn tavenner on center stage. we want to get an answer. i was curious, as much as you try to do the radio show simultaneously, i was trying to read the closed captions to the question of how many people have signed up. let's see if we get an answer. >> we will not have those numbers available until mid-november. we will have those numbers available in mid-november.
3:06am
we will have those numbers available in mid-november. we will get those numbers in mid-november. we will have those numbers available in mid-november. wewe will also have that information available in mid-november as well. >> are we losing our minds or did just say that a million times? >> she is. >> we're lucky she got to answer even that much because apparently it is reported there was so much back and forth during this committee hearing that she barely got to answer anything. but does that answer anything? we'd say no. mid-november? thanksgiving? christmas? you're not meeting our expectations as americans. >> the beautiful thing about the website is all you have to do, you can use your smart phone. i could go on my smart phone if i had the right access and i could tell you exactly how many people are on foxnews.com right now to the person. they know exactly what the number is. unfortunately it is so small, many believe, it's an embarrassment. >> how about this? this is what she said.
3:07am
this is what lost me. she lost me at -- >> hello. >> i think we've seen a lot of improvements. yes i do. >> the response from congressman buchanan. i hope you don't honestly feel the system is working. that is an incredibly bad rollout. i think the other story yesterday is what healthcare.gov, it's not up and running, but what obamacare is doing. it's kicking people off of their health care plan. >> and they knew it. >> which they knew about and they promised would not happen. >> think about it. the affordable care act will not work with millions of people on those cheap policies. so what they've got to do is kick them off the cheap policies and push them into the exchanges. that's the only way the exchanges are going to work. meanwhile, as it turns out, one of the big contractors behind healthcare.gov, that company, c.g.i., it turns out there is a little cronyism going on there. apparently the senior vice president to c.g.i., a
3:08am
woman named toni towns whitley went to princeton with michelle obama and they have been friends for a very, very long time. and she also, a political donor. >> not only -- she is the senior vice president of c.g.i. she was a political donor. she gave apparently $500 in 2012 election and another $1,000 to the victory fund. >> now everyone is running with that story but the daily caller was the first to have it yesterday. no one is deflying -- denying it. they were also at the christmas parties for the obamas. >> i think we were at the same party. >> really? three years ago? >> i've been one time. it's eight minutes now after the top of the hour. she's in studio e now with the headlines. >> good morning. i hope you're to have a great day. coming out of the state of arizona, a blinding dust
3:09am
storm leads to a massive pileup killing three people and injuring dozens more. this happening on arizona interstate i-10 between phoenix and tucson. take a look at this mangled mess. 19 vehicles, including cars, trucks and even a motor home, were all caught up in this mayhem. >> it was a chain reaction. that last tractor was driving pretty fast. he just pushed everybody over into me off to the side of the road. car after car, truck after truck, boom, boom, boom. >> it is not uncommon for these dust storms to consume this part of the highway. crews have cleaned up and reopened the lanes. >> a sherrif seizing public records in connection to the fair ride incidents that injured five people last week. the state labor department served with a court order asking for all the files on the vortex ride. operator timothy tutterrow is facing three felony
3:10am
charges accused of tampering with that ride. an update for you on the search for a suspected kidnapper in colorado. police doubling the reward to $20,000 for the capture of this man. take a close look. he tried snatching a little girl, eight years old, from her bedroom on early monday morning. she screamed for help and was able to get away. just as her dad ran to save her, police say the suspect drove away in a gray bmw sedan. police need your help there. there is no doubt about it. the uniform for athletes in the 2014 winter olympics will all be american-made. the american designer ralph lauren says he's been working for two years to make this right teaming up with more than 40 vendors from across the united states. they will be making 650 uniforms. they faced controversy in olympics 2008 when congress found out the uniforms were
3:11am
made in china. the olympics will be held in russia. >> good update by ralph lauren. >> ten minutes after the hour. straight ahead. >> the obamacare rollout one big mess but did the government know it wasn't ready? our next guest works with the obamacare exchanges and is giving us an inside look. ♪ ♪ good job! still running in the morning? yeah. getting your vegetables every day? when i can.

3:15am
will probably get grilled up on capitol hill. from website glitches to the lack of enrollment, the disastrous rollout was the focus of hearings yesterday as well. >> to the millions of americans who have attempted to use healthcare.gov to shop and enroll in health care coverage, i want to apologize to you that the website has not worked as well as it should. >> duh? so the answer all americans want to know is when is that website going to work? mike owens is senior vice president of go health and he joins us right now. good morning to you. >> good morning. thank you for having me. >> you bet. you're involved in the exchanges? >> our company is based in chicago, have a web base designation and we are closely aligned with the exchanges and the rollout. >> did you guys know the website was going to be such a stink bomb going in? >> in the summer indications were that based on tests we were seeing, this wasn't going to work as well as everyone hoped.
3:16am
and we had our fingers crossed like everybody else. >> it sounds like kathleen sebelius later today will blame the vendors, the people they hired to put it together. >> i hope lawmakers on the hill today ask her the tough questions and the deflection stops and she accepts responsibility for what has happened because it is her responsibility. >> a bunch of lawmakers are watching right now. what's a tough question to ask her? >> when she knew and how soon should she have informed the american public, the people that were counting on this program to work for coverage and have that coverage in place. and more porch, -- more importantly when it will work with some definitive answer we can all believe in. >> initially we blamed the volume. we had no idea we were going to have so much volume and said the website will be fixed by the end of november. unfortunately that is when the volume is probably going to get higher because people are going to realize i've only got a month less. >> we believe websites with
3:17am
high volume where you can buy books, those websites handle much more traffic. to say we didn't know how many people, when the government forecast nine million to ten million people would enroll in the first six months is irresponsible. >> it started out with the website and now it hit the fan regarding the fact that there are millions of americans who are going to lose their policies even though the president promised if you like your health care, you can keep the policy plan. that turns out -- i hate to say it's a lie -- but simply not true. >> right. the president should have said you can keep your policy if you like it. not. rather you can keep your policy if it contains the ten essential health benefits in a qualified health plan. those tension essential health benefits include -- those ten essential health benefits include pediatric dental plans and surgery. >> you look at what was going on in the united states at that time.
3:18am
first he was running for president. then he was trying to get that thing passed. and so sometimes when you're in politics, you'll say anything to get through. >> there was euphoria at the beginning of 2010 when everybody said, wow, i don't have coverage and i'm going to get it in an affordable way and/or i have very expensive coverage and i'm going to be able to save some money. it turns out very few of those things have come true. >> there is an item in the "wall street journal" this morning that says that millions of people are losing their coverage by design because for the affordable care act to work you've got to have the people who have the cheap policies to go on to the exchanges because it's a numbers thing. >> i read that article on the way over here this morning, walking down the street here in cold new york city. it is a numbers game. it is pooled risk. if everybody who has an inexpensive plan are healthy, the unhealthy would be in the pool and it would drive prices up further. >> you've got to get two
3:19am
million young people to sign up. their policies are going to go through the roof because they are going to pay a lot more. >> if you're not underwritten and you're put into a big pool, your rate will by science will go up. >> is it stkpw-g to work? -- is it going to work? >> i believe it is a lofty goal. i think it is a good idea for consumers to stop using the emergency room and to have wellness benefits is a good thing. i truly believet's see what hap. thank you. 20 minutes after the top of the hour. the e.p.a. shutting down a cheerleader squad's car wash claiming the car wash hurts the environment. is that government regulation gone too far? of course it is. one of the cheerleaders here next. a russian operative put up front to spy on the united states. was it really inside a goodie bag they handed out at the summit?

when the e.p.a. shuts down their fund-raising car wash claiming it hurts the environment. here to talk is a cheerleader and her mom. thanks for being up this morning, up early i know from the west coast. how disappointing is it, bailey, to know you guys can't raise the money that you need to just get a shot at winning a championship? >> i'm really disappointed because as a cheerleader, during profootball and basketball, that's what we work towards. we go to practice and practice three hours a day, three days a week. and plus games and then that's just our main goal. that's where we want to go. knowing that it's going to be that much harder to get there without the money is very disappointing especially because of all the hard work we put in. >> sure. you're a bunch of hard-working individuals there. elizabeth, you're the team mom, not only bailey's mom. i'm sure you found out in a way that was fairly serious. we have the info from the
3:25am
e.p.a. that came in. how frustrating is it for you as a mom to see the kids want to work hard and earn their way? >> it was really unfortunate. we did plan for the car wash, and then a few days later i guess a few neighbors complained. and so the city of san jose environmental services department came out and spoke with our principal and let him know that we would be cited if we had another car wash. so it was really disappointing because it was one of our main fund-raising activities and it did bring in a lot of money for the cheer team. >> we have the call statement from the environmental services. anything not considered storm water or drain water is considered a pollutant. if it goes into a drain that pollutant will harm
3:26am
wildlife. certainly your intention is not to hurt wildlife and your teammates will work hard. what are alternatives here? can you team up with the local professional car wash? they recommend that from the e.p.a. maybe there's a gas station out there that can help you. are you going to try that? >> we actually haven't thought about that yet, but we have other fund-raisers. we have one next weekend coming up at applebees where we're selling $6 tickets where $3.50 of that money goes to us. applebees will serve breakfast to people who buy tickets from us. >> we hope you can get those funds and we have faith you will, and good luck in all the competitions. bailey and elizabeth, thanks for being with us this morning. >> thank you. >> thank you for having us. >> it's the number-one question americans want the answer to. was the president really unaware that millions of

earlier this week hackers from syria targeted president obama's twitter and facebook accounts. which got even weirder when obama hired them to fix the obamacare website. you guys seem to know what you're doing. >> you know, it's interesting. over the last couple of months have you noticed how many times the president when asked what did you know about that? well, i really didn't know about it ahead of time. for instance, what about the i.r.s. scandal? where they targeted conservatives. i found out about that from news reports. what about the department of justice targeting reporters? found out about it from news reports. >> what about security issues at benghazi? this is the first time hearing about it. what about knowledge of fast and furious? i'm looking into it the attorney general is on top of it. we know about james rosen and the i.r.s. as steve
3:32am
mentioned. together you have the president saying i really didn't know. lately you have the n.s.a. spying, i wouldn't say scandal, but evidently there are reports that about 35 different heads of state feel as though we've been tapping their phone, meta dating their -- >> it would be a scandal if the president would be truthful. >> is this gross negligence? is this wild ignorance? we can't even figure it out. sooner or later the answers will come to the surface, but does it affect his credibility? if you have the president, the leader of the free world not knowing, not just one area, but all of this. karl rove said really no one is looking out for him. take a listen to this. >> inside the white house every remark made by the president, every prepared speech no matter how important or how routine is reviewed by the top advisors to the president in a process generally
3:33am
overseen by the staff secretary. so the president's people had to know like the president knew this was wrong, that the president couldn't say if you like what you got you can keep it. yet for years smart people like bill daily and rahm emanuel and david plouffe read these speeches, knew it was wrong and none of them said to the president, mr. president, your credibility is on the line. >> of course he was talking about the president saying over and over again if you like your plan you're going to be able to keep your plan, from 2008 to the present day. that was another example of they seem to be off message. >> not knowing because they have blinders on heading towards a single-payer system? >> that the ultimate goal? >> that doesn't matter, any of this. let me get there. you guys take the fall for me if you know. i don't. i'm going to proceed ahead so we can get to that single-payer system. >> if they're being truthful, dana mill bank writes in "the washington post" about the president
3:34am
says he doesn't know all this stuff. on another level it would be more disconcerting. he says is it better he didn't know about his administration's missteps or that he knew about them and didn't stop them? >> what do you think? let us know on facebook. to know or not to know, what's worse? that is the question. now we have some answers because heather nauert has headlines. >> good to see you. 34 minutes after the hour. some headlines to bring you. the white house may have missed the chance to nab a benghazi terrorist in libya. in two raids earlier this month they were able to grab a suspect but the white house never gave the go ahead, apparently because they were nervous about how the libyan people might react. as if relations with russia weren't strained enough, we're now learning that russia bugged the goody bags of world leaders at the g-20 summit in st. petersburg. russian operatives
3:35am
reportedly handed out gift pwagdz that contained u.s.b. drives and phone chargers. the problem is the devices were actually trojan horses designed to download information and then send it back to russia. a spokesman for russian president putin denies these allegations. here in new york a politician is outraged after being told he had to ditch his american drag lapel pin. queen city council candidate joseph concanan, an air force veteran and nypd captain but that is completely irrelevant in the new york city law books. his u.s. flag pin was cropped out of his official candidate photo. what do you think of that? >> the best could coffee machine in america is the cheapest. mr. coffee $40 coffee maker
3:36am
outbrews some of the best machines. mr. coffee is the topic. i love the mr. coffee. >> it is simple. you don't have expensive cartridges. you want eight cups -- >> all the fancy german ones. >> joe dimaggio was the spokesperson for them and he passed away. we've got to go with somebody else. i actually think the new genius thing is those single canisters. how genius is that? >> one cup. >> that office all you need. >> -- that's all you need. >> if anybody else wants coffee -- >> get in line children. look, we've got maria molina. it's wednesday. time for our science trivia quiz. >> good morning. today's question is, is lightning hotter than the surface of the sun? and if so, by how much?
3:37am
the answer choices are a, the sun is hotter. b, lightning is two times hotter. c, lightning is five times hotter. or d, ten times hotter than the sun. this is the surface of the sun. >> not the middle. >> the core temperature is different. >> does the answer have to be in the form of a question? >> a, b, c or d. >> i'm going with b. >> i'm going to go c. >> i'll go d. >> actually, brian, you're right. the answer is c. lightning is five times hotter than the surface of the sun. the surface of the sun is actually about 10,000ees farenh. lightning 50,000 degrees farenheit. >> how do you measure that? >> thermometer. >> brian is right and out of sight. he got it right. i'm so proud of him. >> got sports in a minute.
3:38am
>> let's look at the weather conditions across the country. today we do have a storm headed eastward. this storm does have the possibility of producing severe weather anywhere from texas up into kansas, damaging winds, large hail and isolated tornadoes will be a concern. guess what? the storm is headed eastward. tomorrow on halloween, we could be seeing severe weather from texas into sections of ohio. so this is something to watch here. we have the possibility of severe weather, heavy rain possible as well. locally up to eight inches of rain, so flooding concerns here in eastern parts of texas watches are currently in effect. high temperatures very warm east of the storm. 70's and 80's today. behind it on the chilly side in the 40's. let's head over to brian. >> yesterday was the start of the nba season. the hottest league in the whole world up for another 82-game saga, including the president of the united states who sent out a tweet to derrick rose of the chicago bulls who sat out for a year with that knee injury saying essentially good luck.
3:39am
the bulls have their hands full. they travel to miami who got their rings before the game for being back to back champions but it came down to all business, no more fun. the heat got their rings and took it to the bulls. final score 107-95. lebron james seems really good again, 17 points and 6 assists for him. the heat were victorious in game number one. some of the best football players have sordid trickery in it. let's go to high school football games where they should be studying but instead play tackle football. line up for an extra point and all of a sudden number 69 starts monkey-making noises and began hopping off. they snap the ball in the kicker, takes a page out of the tebow play book and does a jump pass. 62-7. >> meanwhile, the month of october which is coming to a close is national pizza month. as the month comes to a
3:40am
close we're celebrating one last time with california pizza kitchen, c.p.k. >> here to show us the art of tossing dough and making pizza is the innovator and creator of c.p.k. >> why are we still tossing pizza? shouldn't we have a machine doing this? should we still be doing this in 2013? >> absolutely. there is a lot of fun making dough. >> you guys brought in a gluten-free pizza. i could not be more excited. >> mushroom, pepperoni and sausage pizza. it is gluten-free. we will rolled out four new pizzas, they are gluten-free. they are phenomenal. i'm going to make the wild mushroom pizza. i'm going to start off with extra virgin olive oil. we're going to brush the dough with this. >> need help? >>shannon: -- >> sure.
3:41am
>> i used to have chef boy-ar-dee. we used to on sundays make pizza. >> i love the different combos you guys have. >> we have three different mushrooms. we have shitakes, pocicini and portabellos. we're going to scallion it up and hit it with fresh parmesan. >> you put it in the oven for how long? >> 550 degrees for probably about 6 minutes. >> what is the theory behind tossing the pizza? we want to get it bigger and -- >> we're going to go up and give it a little toss like
3:42am
that. go as high as you can. >> you do what you can. >> that was up -- whose is higher? >> that's beautiful. >> if you get a hole, what do you do? >> pinch it. >> can't use that one now. >> all right. >> i'm going to start again. >> that's a problem. >> coming up next hour, brian sullivan from california pizza kitchen, thank you very much. >> while we're waiting for that to come on down we've got fun stuff coming up. right, brian? >> we've got a high school basketball team from an indiana town that continues to play on and inspire many despite not winning.

while a body in motion tends to stay in motion. staying active can ease arthritis symptoms. but if you have arthritis, this can be difficult. prescription celebrex can help relieve arthritis pain and improve daily physical function so moving is easier. because just one 200mg celebrex a day can provide 24 hour relief for many with arthritis pain. and it's not a narcotic. you and your doctor should balance the benefits with the risks. all prescription nsaids, like celebrex, ibuprofen, naproxen and meloxicam have the same cardiovascular warning. they all may increase the chance of heart attack or stroke, which can lead to death. this chance increases if you have heart disease or risk factors such as high blood pressure or when nsaids are taken for long periods. nsaids, like celebrex, increase the chance of serious skin or allergic reactions, or stomach and intestine problems, such as bleeding and ulcers, which can occur without warning and may cause death. patients also taking aspirin and the elderly are at increased risk for stomach bleeding and ulcers. don't take celebrex if you have bleeding in the stomach or intestine, or had an asthma attack, hives,

>> it's time for "fox & friends." >> we will not have those numbers available to you. >> you got to wonder what the administration is thinking. they've locked themselves into the end of november to get the web site going. why would they do that? in the middle of november, we're expect to go see numbers, why would they do that on a date certain? >> i think they know everyone really doesn't depend on what they say anymore. >> s that gotten to that point? >> it has. sebelius will be forced to answer some questions about the failed obamacare rollout. she hasn't even sat down. she's already blaming the contractors. she's pointing that finger away. listen to this. >> yeah, she's going to say in prepared statements, she's going to say cms, the centers for medicare and medicaid services used private sector contractors just as it does to administer aspects of medicare. cms has a track record of successfully overseeing the many contractors our program depends on of the an evil subset may

have not met expectations. the problem and people in the i.t. world say, look, they had 55 different vendors, gigantic the way it all had to work. but rather than farm it out to have a professional manager, what the federal government did was instead, they said, you know what? we are smarter than them. we're going to manage it. also according to politico, what they say is hhs refused to bring in outside help to fix the site because they were worried that republicans were going to subpoena the new contractors and expose the site's problems and mismanagement. you got to figure that that line questioning will be directed at the secretary later today. >> so their priority is protecting their information rather than forgetting the american people's information that they're putting on there. they also did -- they seemed to refuse and i hope she answers this, why did you refuse the advice of the contractors at cgi
4:03am
that said, quote, there is not enough time to schedule the adequate time for testing. >> that's the key. unless you want rhetoric, democrats saying you did a great job in an impossible situation and republicans going after her, questions like that have to be asked. you were told about this in july, why didn't you have lengthy test runs prior to this? but if you want to get a preview of what today would be like, you had to tune in yesterday when you had marilyn tavener, the administer for medicare and medicaid. she must be on a different planet. she was asked by congressman vern buchanan, basically how it's going. i can't believe what we heard back from marilyn. >> i think you said -- i'm trying to quote what you said -- you thought the system is work. did you say that, you thought the aca is working? >> i think we've seen a lot of improvements from the aca, yes, sir. >> let me tell you, it's a
4:04am
public relations nightmare. i hope that you honestly don't feel that you think the system is working. this is just an incredibly bad rollout. there is a lot that needs to be done. i can't imagine how you can think that the system is work. >> how well is the system working? well, last night the information hub blacked out once again. account users couldn't log on to their accounts and if you were interested in opening an account, you could not do it. despite what the manager said, the system is down. look, they're working to resolve the issue as soon as possible. >> that's just the web system. what about the real system, the actual system of obamacare, as they put it in writing, they knew 40 to 67% of americans were going to lose their health care. >> i think it's almost comical that all of a sudden other networks are starting to look at obamacare and are shocked that it's not like the president promised. you have 14 million americans who buy insurance on the individual market also have
4:05am
their policies canceled. major companies walking away from obamacare because it doesn't make financial sense. the president is on record at least 12 times, we caught him on tape saying publicly, if you have a plan, you'll be able to keep your plan. if you like your doctor, you'll be able to keep your doctor. what if your doctor leaves your business or not accepting your plan anymore? who is advising the president on that? and man, does he look like he's out of touch with the entire process. here is brit hume on beyond the web site. this program is in trouble. >> the value of the shadow of debt through which the president and his health care program are now traveling looks like it's going to continue for a while. it's not good either way. if you look at it he didn't know, there is a list of people as long as your arm who undoubtedly did. so if he didn't, that looks terrible. if he did know and i think suspicion is increasing in this town that he had to, that looks even worse.
4:06am
so either way you slice it, this is ugly. >> so right now what's happening is the white house is trying to spin it, well, you know, all that stuff was right, but he probably should have had some caveats where he would have said you can keep your health care if it lives up to the new standards of the affordable care act. >> they're blaming the insurance companies. >> well, what they're doing is they're trying to spin themselves out of this hole that they have dug themselves into. they also said if you have a policy, you will be grandfathered in. but then a couple months later, what they did was changed the law. what's interesting is -- i think today with sebelius, we're going to see tough questions not only from republicans, but from democrats as well because the democrats have been pretty much hung out to dry. in the beginning, the whole thing with the web site, that caught them off guard. now with all these people who are facing cancellation, apparently the democrats want to defend it and they're trying to get information from the white house. the white house won't give them guidance on how they should spin themselves out of this hole.
4:07am
>> they think they were going to be wrapped up by noon, they start at 9 a.m let's hope they use those four minutes wisely. send us, what would you ask sebelius based on how you've been affected. >> yeah. if we're not here, we're going to go on facebook this hour. so if you don't see us out on camera, we'll be back talking to you via the facebook. that's what the kids call it. i thought it was interesting in the "wall street journal" today, they cite insurance provider flax fellow blue, who are canceling 300,000 bare bones insurance policies. if the insurance companies walk away because they can't meet the standards of an act that was forced upon them, who is to blame? according to the administration, it's the insurance companies. >> that's the grand design of obamacare. to squeeze everyone out of their existing plan, to squeeze insurance companies so they have an option to cut and run from the american people and put everyone into the system. why? because everyone in the system who is there has to pay for it. so if you don't have anybody in the system, you got to get them in will. how? you squeeze them out of their
4:08am
existing situation. >> where do they have to go? the new federal exchanges. and that perhaps will be the saving grace 'cause a lot of people can't get on-line. so they're waiting in line now. meanwhile, she's patiently waiting with a fist full of headlines. >> i'm waiting for you to solve the world's problems. i have some headlines. there was a blinding dust storm in arizona that led to a massive pileup that killed three people and injured a dozen more. this happened in arizona on interstate i 10 between phoenix and tucson. take a look at the mangled mess. 19 vehicles, including cars, trucks and even a motor home caught up in the mayhem. take a look. >> it was a chain reaction. that last tractor there was driving pretty fast. he just pushed everybody over into me off the side of the road. car after car, truck after truck, boom, boom, boom. >> that highway was closed for five hours. a north carolina sheriff is now seizing public records in

4:10am
(bleep). >> a whole lot of bleeps. that's because they were using some foul language we can't use on tv. but they're punching each other. the man he was so angry with was his hair stylist and you can see the stylist punching through the door of the suv, swearing at him and then guy going right back at him, kick at him. his rep says the guys were messing around and things got out of hand, but they're all good now. that never happens around here. >> we don't punch our hair stylist. that's one thing great about fox. >> no, we hug them. >> we also don't like spiky blond hair. so that's another advantage we have over guy fieri. >> there you go. i'm looking at "fox & friends" in-box for our regular e-mail. a number of you are wondering regarding kathleen sebelius
4:11am
whether she'll take the fifth. >> we've seen that before. >> can you imagine? >> the lois lerner i plead the fifth and get paid to take the summer off? >> lois lerner did apologize for targeting conservatives and then she started taking the fifth. yesterday we had the cms administrator who apologized. i wonder if that's just to set the table for sebelius. keep those questions coming. they're good. coming up, russian operatives putting on a front to spy on the united states. what was really inside the goody bags they handed out at the g-20 summit? >> wait 'til you hear. and he promised you to keep your doctor. but the president's word proving to be no good. is his broken promise the point of in return? we'll take a look back in history as we roll on live from new york city. ♪

4:15am
if you're one of the more than 250 million americans who already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance. this law will only make it more secure and more affordable. >> that was just one of the times the president has said most americans learning the hard way that he couldn't possibly be telling the truth as we find out more and more about obamacare, as more and more people actually lose the coverage they were promise to do hold on to. with this new broken promise to the american people, has the president reached the point of no return to this point? nothing has stuck. he went through three scandals at the same time and got through it fine. let's ask presidential historian and author, jail hampton cook. jane, this is a big turning point for president or a bump in the road? >> i think it's a turning point because the l.a. times over the weekend reported that a woman
4:16am
whose health insurance is increasing by 50% said i was all for obamacare until i found out that i was paying for it. so i think the difference here is that people who supported president obama and obamacare are starting to feel that he's broken a promise to them. that's a real dangerous point for a president, when some of your supporters are starting to turn on your policy. >> being an historian like you are, certain things stand out from other presidents. for example, president carter malaise speech, where he talked about our country plateauing. >> that's right. it was called the crisis imcompetence speech and it was a down. i counted one time, he beat his fist on the desk more than 30 times. it was such a downbeat speech, there was very little optimism. people elected jimmy carter because he could feel their pain and also share their dream. there was no dream sharing in that speech and it was a turning point for him. >> it was a turning point, so was he going to turn it around or was he going to go down the
4:17am
hostage crisis, did away with that. you pointed to gerald ford making an important speech that boomeranged. when he said our long national nightmare is over. >> yes. when he took the oath of office, when nixon resigned, he said, the long national nightmare is over. and then a month later, he pardoned nixon, which forwarded that policy, that idea. but a lot of americans felt nixon didn't get enough accountability, that he should have gone through some sort of judicial process or some sort of investigation. ford was just trying to put it behind americans, but a lot of americans felt there was some injustice there. >> you look at george bush's iraq policy. after the successful invasion, what happened after wasn't going well. in 2006, and a lot of people who supported the war started turning on president bush and the war. but it forced a policy change and that was the surge. >> that's right. the democrats ran in the 2006
4:18am
mid terms on anti-iraq policy and won. president bush, though, took that and he changed the strategy. he invited people to come talk to him in december of 2006, people from the state department, military advisors and implemented the surge in january of 2007. so he used it and showed that he was going to change and alter his policy. >> reporter: the year is 1968. lbj comes forward with a speech about vietnam. says we reached a point of no return. >> that's right. lbj resigned -- i'm sorry. he did not resign. he chose not to run again in 1968 because the policy in vietnam just wasn't going well. he couldn't get the north vietnamese to the peace table like he wanted. it was a broken promise to a lot of people. sew just chose not to -- so he just chose not to run again. >> you bring up james madison's war policy in the war of 1812. he ends up outside on a horse by
4:19am
himself while they burn all of washington. he was too fixated on canada and not defending the capitol against the british. >> that's right. i wrote about that in "american phoenix," that he had a point of no return in his presidency, meaning the british burned the u.s. capitol and the white house. but madison did turn it around and he became a much more decisive leader in the months immediately after that. he had been rather detached. it will be interesting to see what president obama does. if he follows madison's model and gets more engaged. >> yeah. madison made a personal contact changed the way history looked at him. thanks so much. >> thanks for having me. >> straight ahead on our show, and we have a lot more show, just when you that the the irs scandal could not get any worse, taxpayers, well, you're about to get the bill for all of that. and you know him best for his role as the psych on "l.a. law" and his next role, he's spreading a message of faith.

4:47am
potentially they can lose a commission. finally, with regard to knowing the deal, there is a three to ten-year statute of limitations, depending upon the state you're in. meaning that they can't collect a debt that's too old. >> that's interesting. once upon a time, i guess we didn't pay a doctor bill or something like that, got a call from a debt collection agency and they said, you owe some money and send it to us. i said, can't i just pay the doctor? >> yes, you can pay the doctor. and you can work out a deal with the doctor, absolutely. you can go back to the original creditor. sometimes even when it's gone out to the debt collector 'cause as i said, they have it a limited time. if they don't collect it, they're going to be sent to another debt collector. >> then, when do you make a deal? >> some people say -- though it's a little bit of a mystery and now this is a highly federally regulated area -- think about calling around the last week of a month, when a collector's monthly goals may not be meeting expectations.
4:48am
it's kind of similar to going to buy a car. sometimes if you know when they're quota period is up, then maybe you can make a better deal. the important thing, though, is to speak, is to not hide. if they get abusive, if they insult you, if they harass you, if they threaten you with criminal action, then report them. shut them down. tell them don't be sending these letters to me. >> toward the end of the month, they could be motivated like a car dealer. how do you make the deal? >> it's like any other deal. one of the best deal makers i know in the world is donald trump, the art of the deal. you can make a deal with anyone. begin by offering a a fraction of the amount. if you don't believe that money is really owing, if you believe that you can't pay it and that you're going to suffer bankruptcy as a result of it, try and make a deal because the debt collector would rather have a percentage than nothing if you go into bankruptcy. you may, in fact, be able to settle a debt between 50 or 60
4:49am
or 70% of the actual debt. then it's really important. am i going to pay a lump sum or monthly installments? know this, don't pay more than you can afford and also know that you can extend the statute of limitations by paying the debt, meaning that if there is only three years in which to collect a debt, once you make a payment, that may, under state law, extend their time to collect it and then if you don't pay that, then it leads to other problems with more debt collectors going forward. >> speaking of problems, if you have a complaint, what do you do? >> if off complaint, there is a couple different organizations that regulate it. but this is the easiest way. go to consumerfinance.gov/complaint. you can file a complaint there. you can also go to a lawyer if it gets abusive or harassing. there is an ability to sue in the united states. and know what's happening with your credit. this is free in america. this is free in america.

today finally, health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius will answer
5:15am
questions about the disasterous obamacare rollout and the plan as it's becoming exposed. what can we expect to hear? >> according to her prepared remarks, more of the same. she plans to point the finger at the contractors that they hired. joining us from -- that's part of her statement. joinings from capitol hill is congressman and the chairman of the house energy and commerce committee, fred upton. good morning to you. >> it's still fred, good morning. >> fred, good morning to you. we've already heard, she's going to blame the contractors. don't blame me. blame them! >> you know, the contractors told us last week that, in fact, they had the number of people who had enrolled. so there is no reason for this, the most transparent administration in history, according to them, for them not to share those numbers with us. one of the things that we're very concerned about is more people have received a cancellation notice than have actually signed up for the affordable care act or obamacare. >> what number do you have on the cancellation?
5:16am
we hear it's in the millions. >> well, i think it is probably in the millions. it's certainly in the hundreds of thousands. i know that every one of us on the committee has heard from people who have been told in a letter that their policy is canceled. i introduced legislation earlier this week that we hope to have on the floor soon, co-sponsored by more than 50 folks that says if you had a plan, you will be grandfathered. we'll keep the president's pledge. if you had a plan in january of this year, you don't have to be canceled. you can have it throughout next year, too. >> sure. fred, so many americans were just shocked when they discovered in the last 48 hours that they got the cannulation notices because the president was very clear. if you like your doctor, you can keep him. as it turns out now, that looks like a lie. >> and when they try to sign up for this, if they're finally able to and the web site was shut down again yesterday as it was, monday as it was, over the weekend, they're finding their premium increases are as much as
5:17am
100%, even 400% increases and the deductibles are going up in the thousands of dollars as well. that's not keeping the pledge if you like on ad your health insurance, you can keep it. >> you're drilling down on this, chairman. you want to find out today who changed what. what's your question? >> why did they make these regulatory changes? who decided to do that? and did they tell the president. >> the plan that passed changed after it passed? >> it did. when it was signed into law on march 23rd, 2010, it grandfathered existing individual plans. later in the summer, i want to say july -- a regulation was changed that, in fact, they knew would undermine probably as much as 50, maybe even 60% of the individual plans. yet the president was still out on the trail saying look, if you like your health insurance, you
5:18am
can keep it. we know that's not true for hundreds of thousands of americans who are going to the mailbox and finding that cancellation notice. last week, the week before, next week, it's not a good thing. >> yeah. fred, do you worry that part of the grand plan -- and i know you guys on the republican side weren't in on it -- was to get a bunch of these low cost insurance policy holders, force them through cancellation into the public exchanges so that the affordable care act will be a success? >> that could be. we've had a dozen oversight hearings on this. it all started when, of course, they assured us, they looked us in the eye and said, you know what, the rollout is going to work just fine. but of course, as we've learned, they've got so many subcontractors, they never tested line from one end to the other until a week or two prior to october 1 and the system crashed, as it is still doing.
5:19am
a pretty disastrous start, to say the least. >> for those who say this is exactly like the prescription plan the president bush put forward, what did you say to that? >> well, there is one big difference: the prescription drug plan, which i voted for, allows for choice. you're not forced into something if you don't want it. dozens of plans are available in most states. individuals as their health needs change, they can change from one plan to another. and they're not forced to participate as they are -- actually not only forced into this plan, you're actually fined if you don't sign up. how is that an american idea? >> good point. i'm sure you got lots of good questions on both sides of the aisle. >> i wish i had more than four minutes. >> no kidding. fred upton, the chairman of the house energy and commerce committee, he'll be presiding 40 minutes from now on capitol hill. congressman, thank you. >> thanks. >> the world will be watching. 19 minutes after the hour. coming up, this politician wore an american flag pin for

5:34am
video of general petraeus walk to go his first day of class as they began to scream at him? yesterday ray kelly was asked to speak at brown university to a group of students who are supposed to be the best of the best. he wanted to talk about the antiterrorism tactics and fighting crime in new york city. not only was he not embraced, he had to leave. they boo'd him off the stage. he took himself away from work to go address these students for free and they boo'd him off the stage. listen. >> asking that you let him speak and you make your comments as part of the question and answer part of the program. >> we're asking to you stop frisking people! >> idiots. >> they don't like stop and frisk even though you look at the anecdotal information here in new york city, stop and frisk has reduced crime enormously. they hooted him down. he left. he did write in the pages of the
5:35am
new york daily news, elisabeth, what he tried to say. >> seems to be inexcusable those students would have some sort of faux outrage over something that by his definition, ray kelly, is life saving. he's saying by concentrating our resources in the areas where they're needed most, we've been able to sharply reduce the number of young minority lives lost to violence. 25% reduction in the murder rate here in new york. okay? 1990 homicides peaked at 2245. last year? 419. so why are you booing a man who saved the lives of thousands? >> why wouldn't they want to hear that? >> if you are so courageous and so headstrong and so arrogant to think you know more about fighting crime and keeping the city streets safe, then have the courage to debate. how dare you make him go all the way up to your elite $55,000 a year college campus and shout him down when his service as a marine, what he did in haiti,
5:36am
what he's done in the city two separate times is not for the money, it's legendary? and you don't have the courage to ask a question? you have to hoot and holler and tell your parents tomorrow how proud you are! >> if anything happened, god forbid in that room, guess who they would be running to. the gentleman that they boo'd. let's us know what you think on twitter, e-mail. >> proud to be in new york city. remember what they did to david petraeus. that's the same mindset of the next generation. >> a little intolerant, they are on that side. in the meantime, 24 minutes before the top of the hour. heather has some news about a bus crash. >> out of new york city area. fox news alert, we are taking a live look at some brand-new video, staten island, new york. you can see right here there is a school bus -- see that small school bus? that apparently overturned in staten island, new york. you can see the crews were just able to -- this is video. not live pictures -- crews were just able to flip that back over
5:37am
and right it. reports say that eight people have been seriously hurt, including several children. it's 8:36 a.m that's the time so many kids going to school. we will hope for the best and bring you updates throughout the morning. this, out of staten island, new york, where a school bus flipped over. also new information coming in this morning. russian president vladimir putin replacing president obama as the most powerful person in the world. on forbes fifth annual list, the president dropped to number 2. this at the same time we're learning some interesting scuttle but the coming out of the g-20 summit. russia apparently bugged the goody bags of world leaders at that summit in st. petersburg. the gift bags contained usb drives and phone chargers, but the devices were actually trojan horses designed to download e-mails, text messages and phone calls and send all that information back to russia.
5:38am
a spokesman for president putin denies those allegations. fascinating. then there is this, new york politician outraged after being told to ditch his american flag lapel pin. queens city council candidate is an air force veteran and a retired nypd captain. but that is all irrelevant in this city's rule book. they have a long-standing policy that forbids office seekers from wearing pins or buttons in voter guide photos or in videos. his u.s. flag pin was cropped out of his official candidate photo. what do you think of that? and then there is this: move over, puppy bowl. the kittens are taking over the field. the hallmark channel will give the kitties an opportunity to play in the first ever kitten bowl. it will air all day before the big game on february 2. yankees radio announcers john sterling will handle the play by play calls. some of this will be posted on the kitten bowl youtube page. those are your headlines. can't get enough of watching

5:45am
cause and is hurting our nation's most popular parks. he's here to tell us what really needs to be cut. good morning, senator. thank you for being with us. certainly a busy day in washington today. >> good morning. >> i want to get to your parks because i think the proposal and report you put out is certainly startling. but monday you were asked about working across party lines and today given all that's going on in dc, it makes sense to ask. you talked about having a great relationship with democrat chuck schumer, but had some choice words for harry reid. my guess is you're not alone in that sentiment. but what is it about harry reid that makes you so uncomfortable? >> it's just the fact that the senate is not doing what it's supposed to do and the leadership of the senate has set it so they can form consensus. my words weren't appropriate, but my frustrations are real. our founders designed the senate to force consensus and you can't force consensus if you don't allow amendments and people's
5:46am
voices to be heard. >> well, we thank you for answering that question, too. and certainly expressing frustration that many americans are feeling. how congress misplaced priorities and trashing our national treasure. you say instead of opening up a new park on the moon, why don't we take care of the great treasures we have. correct? >> it's a real problem, elisabeth. we started the parks system, we had 35 national parks, real treasures for the country. we now have 401. a third of those aren't real treasures. they never should have become parks. so what's happening with the limited budget, the very pristine, great parks like yosemite and grand canyon are all having difficulty maintaining what they have today. we're adding land, we're adding new parks. we're spending money that we shouldn't be spending rather than taking care of what we have today. >> exactly. so why would you cut?
5:47am
>> -- where would you cut? >> put a prohibition on any new parks. let's first of all take care of what we've got. the second thing is the parks department, parks organization spends half of the money that we give them every year not on the parks, but on administering the parks. not on park maintenance, not on the actual operations of parks. the other thing is if you're a senior in this country for $10, you can buy a lifetime pass to every national park. that's not an appropriate fee. so there should be some fee increases. but there should be better management. the problem isn't really the parks agency. the problem is congress. congress always wants to make themselves look good to their parochial interests and so we add parks. they're going to push through a couple more parks this week in the senate that we shouldn't be passing that are certainly historical events, but probably should be state parks or state areas. and so out of the $2.6 billion
5:48am
that spend every year, less than half of it actually gets spent on the parks. >> senator, you gave us some specific examples about what could be cut. you say, first of all, you could cut this $3 million for three acres in the virgin islands instead of independence national park repair funding, right? >> right. or the grand tetons. we're going to add $100 million worth of land at ridiculous prices versus average cost of land in wyoming and that would take up for 40% of the shortfall of this year's national parks backlog and maintenance. just that one purchase. >> two more examples you gave. cut this, $217,000 to restore 29 neon signs instead of not that fund to go repair transcanyon pipeline. you say cut this, 107 million to expand the grand teton national
5:49am
park and not that, fund to go clean up gateway national recreation area. >> sure. we just have lost our priorities. congress doesn't make good decisions. they make parochial and political decisions. it's time to return common sense to washington. let's not expand any parks, let's not add any new parks. let's clean up the parks we've got. go look at the national mall. here in washington. it has almost $400 million in backlog that we're not taking care of. we're not even taking care of our nation's capitol. what it is is a lack of priority on the basis of congress of actually making hard choices to get the right things done, to preserve what we know are things need to be preserved. >> senator joining us from the russell rotunda. thank you for taking time out. >> good to see you. coming up, do you believe in ghosts? just in time for halloween. celebrity psychic medium john
